Did you know that there are Veterans in the Bible?
It’s true! In the Old Testament, God gave the nation of Israel the gift of Levites. The Levites would serve in the tent of meeting, assisting the priests so that the nation could worship.
At 50 years old, Levites were promoted to a new service: assisting their brothers. Having reached an age when strength and eyesight had diminished, such qualities as wisdom and mentorship were even more valuable to the community.
On Veterans Day, as you appreciate those who have faithfully served, remember to think of practical ways to show your gratitude. Ask a vet for wisdom, seek some council. Buy their lunch, hear their story. If you give yourself the opportunity to bless a veteran, you will certainly receive more than you give.
